Abstract: This paper concerns an optimal control problem of elliptic singular perturbations in variational inequalities (with controls appearing in coefficients, right-hand sides and convex sets of states as well). The existence of an optimal control is verified. The applications to the optimal design of an elastic plate with a small rigidity and with inner (or moving) obstacle a primal finite element model is applied and convergence result is obtained.

Keywords: optimal control problems, singular perturbations in variational inequalities, convex sets, elastic plates with small rigidity, obstacles
